In the US there's no Bachelor of Medicine neither Bachelor of Law ( such as in Brazil ); a student who wants to become a lawyer or a physician must get a bachelor's degree prior to passing an admission test which will qualify or show the student is able to pursue graduate studies in Law or Medicine.
Common pre-law bachelor's degrees are Political Science, English, History and Biology, Physical Education are common pre-med bachelor's.
After a student gets his/her bachelor's degree he/she must take the LSAT ( law test ) or MCAT ( medicine ) and score high enough, so that the student can apply to go to law of medicine, respectively.
To become a lawyer in the US takes 2 years of full-time study to become a physician or a dentist takes a bit longer ( dentists also have to have a bachelor's degree prior to taking the DAT (dental admission tests ).
So you see, in Brazil and South America in General the market is flooded with dentists and lawyers, but not in the US. Such system protects the market from flooding with professional in a certain field. However, MBAs are much more common in the US than other majors although MBAs must pass GMAT before being admited to the graduate program in business.
